Anacardium orridentale: Anacardium orridentale seeds should be sown in well-draining soil and kept moist at all times. They require bright, indirect light and warm temperatures of around 70-80�F (21-27�C) for optimal germination. Germination can take anywhere from 1-3 months.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
